Nutrition experiments in pigs and poultry: a practical guide.

Book cover for Nutrition experiments in pigs and poultry: a practical guide.

Description

This book provides an invaluable resource for all animal and veterinary scientists designing, analyzing and interpreting results from nutrition and feed experiments in pigs and poultry. The emphasis throughout is on practical aspects of designing nutrition experiments. The book builds on the basics and proceeds to describe the limitations of experiment design involving different ingredients. It then characterizes experimental diets including ingredient selection, composition and the minimum proximate analysis required. The text details measurements and the tools available for understanding diverse data sets, data analysis and the eventual publication of the research. This fully balanced and extensively referenced, yet practical, text is an invaluable resource to all animal, veterinary and biomedical scientists involved in the designing of nutrition experiments in pigs and poultry, and the publication of their research. It has 162 pages with eight chapters topics of which includes (chapter 1-8 respectively): general principles of designing a nutrition experiment; most common designs and understanding their limits; practical relevance of test diets; characterization of the experimental diets; measurements of nutrients and nutritive value; designing, conducting and reporting swine and poultry nutrition research; extending the value of the literature: data requirements for Holo-analysis and interpretation of the outputs; and presentation and publication of your data.
